T Spain. i- Certainly the worst thing Spain could do for herself would be to even hint, officially to the United States Rovtrn- ment her belief that if it (our government) had taken proper measures to suppress filibustering Spain would have been able before this time to put down the Cuban rebellion. Such a subterfuge would be tbe last resort of a sinking na-1 tion, looking desperately for some straw j to catch at and impotently blaming an- j bthur for its own failures There is lit EUPLT OF SPAIN TO UNCLE SAM, tle doubt that such an intimation to us Some More Accurate Extract* from th« Document'Do Xbt Differ Greatly from TVhat Is Already Known —Spain's Attempt to Buy Oeeiui Cruisers Han'Ji- capped by Lack of Ca»h—Death of th« Hero of the Fiff lit at Korke's Drift.

INFERNAL MACHINE BY MAIL. Wisconsin Doctor Gets a Package Filled with Deadly Explosives. JIayville, Wis.. Nov. 3. — Dr. Bach Fluber, of this city, received through the mails Monday morning a package which upon inspection proved to be an infernal machine. It consisted of a wooden box with a sliding cover about twelve inches in length, three inches in width, and three inches in height. The cover was lined on tljj inside with a strip of sandpaper at me front, and on the inside of the box a row cf matches with the heads upward and touching the sandpaper were attached by means of adhesive plaster so that by sliding the cover they would ignite. Next to these was a quantity of gunpowder and cotton, the balance of the space being filled by a tin can filled to the brim with dynamite, into which had been inserted a dynamite cap. T-.p- on unwrapping the package Dr. Beach Huber luckily noticed several grains oj escaped from the -PATENTS- American and Canadian Patents promptly obtained, Patent, Mechanical an* Perspective Drawings prepared, Inventions Developed.

A pruininent miller of this city said last night that were it ootforthe foreign demand, wheat would not now be selling for more than 40 cents per bushel . Bad for the Administration. . The McKinley administration met with severe reproof at Tuesday's elections. Hanna's defeat is a crusher. Hanna claimed to be the heart and goul of the McKinley administration. Hanna demanded a re-election to the •enate chai he might uphold the administration and guide it into sunny, flowery paths. If, as seems probable, Hanna has been waylaid and put to sleep beneath an avalanche of snow white ballots, -who will rise up to guide McKinley - through the devious paths of currency reform? Who will now lead the forlorn hosts of "sound money?" Banna has been called McKinley's right arm. Who will make the sacrifice and become an artificial limb? But all the sorrows of the Me- Kiniey administration are not confined to tbe dead in Ohio. Boss Platt, wnose leadership in New York was approved by the administration, Las been overwhelmingly defeated. Boss Platt was known as McKinley's left arm, and it was all powerful with the corporations Its hand was ever open for campaign contributions. It was a sorry day for degenerate Republicanism when two Of its Idealistic statesmen, Hanna and Platt, fell outside the breast works, numbered with the dead. presidents, Cleveland and McKinley, have stood for Spain against the sympathies of the whole American people. President McKinley has done this, although it is shrewdly suspected that hia own private sympathies are with the revolutionists of the beautiful island. Even the governments of Europe, with their jaundiced eyes toward everything American, acknowledge this. In an interview with a correspondent of the Philadelphia Times an influential diplomat whose name is not given did not hesitate to say: The opinion is unanimous in the diplomatic corps that ex-President Cleveland »nd President McKinley have done more to preserv* peace and to prerent filibustering, agavnst public clamor, thi.a any monarch would hava done. Tour presidents are more independent of clamor than are any sovereigns in International affairs. The gentlemen who occupy jplomatic positions here have been surprised iat ex-President Cleveland and President Mc- inley should resist public opinion and con- ressional fulrninaiions as they have done. Take Great Britain, for example. If the par- ament should pass resolutions expressive of ublic sentiment; in a matter of international moment in which all of the British people •ere interested, the queen would feel it in- umbent upon her to convey to the friendly ation an expression of the opinion of her sub- ects. uut your presidents have striven to naintam friendly relations with Spain even t the risk of personal unpopularity.

The New York Democracy cannot for years to come dictate the policy of the Democratic party or name its candidate. The leaders of the New York Democracy are too closely allied with the corporations and ioo strongly under the influence of Wail street and London, to be servicable to the Democracy of the Union. The Democratic patty must stand part of the reply goes into elabcrate details concerning the various filibustering expeditions. Spain, in concluding that portion of her reply to the United States, expresses the hope that this phase of the situation will be changed and that the United States will try to "prevent further violations of international law." Reply to the Offer of Mediation. Replying to the offer of mediation made by the United States Spain says she hopes the United States will act "loyally and correctly in helping Spain to pacify Cuba, especially in view of the fact that such an extended form of autonomist government is about to be sincerely- granted." The general feeling here is more hopeful of a peaceful outcome of the situation, especially since Marshal Blanco's arrival at Havana, as it is believed his presence will greatly further the solving of the Cuban problem. At the same time it is pointed out that the submission of the insurgents cannot be expected, "unless they are entirely abandoned by the United States." Spain'* AllRetl Purchase of Warships. London, Nov. 3.—In well-informed circles here it is not believed that Spain has signed the contracts referred to in The Daily Chronicle as having been concluded la=t week with an important firm of British shipbuilders, by which Spain acquires some cruisers armed with quick-firing guns which the firm had nearly completed for another government."

The wreck of the New York Central train on the Hudson river shore near the village of Garrisons may be pronounced the most mysterious that has ccurred in railroad history in America. | ev Several theories have been advanced as o its cause. One is that the retaining vail which supported the roadbed was underuiinBd by the drainage from the hills and the constant wash of the tides and that it suddenly collapsed under he weight of the train. Certainly the roadbed was left completely wrecked at that point when the engine went over nto the river. Again, there may have >een a sudden break in some of the wheels, axles or other machinery of the 'orward part of the train. Even if such weak were found, however, there could be no ascertaining whether it occurred Before or after the accident. Another theory is that dynamite was placed on the track and its explosion caused the frightful wreck which killed 20 people. This seems not possible. The New York Central road is considered one of the safest, most careful in America, which renders the occurrence still more strange. The affairs of the Union Pacific railway seem to the average mind to be involved in inextricable confusion and to have neither head nor tail, but is that what certain persons want? The sale was first ordered for Nov. 2 for the main line. Then it was postponed to Dec. 15. At once the reorganization committee, one of whose chief members J. Pierpout Morgan "of New York, raised its former bid by $8,000,000, making the price it was willing to give for the main line $58,000,000. This sum President McKinley considered sufficient to cover the government's claim and announced that the sale would proceed Nov. 2, as at first arranged. There is, however, still a debt of $13,000,000 due on tbe branch line known as the Kansas Pacific, of little value apart from the Union Pacific. This branch Hue, debt and all, remains on the government's hands. The new secretary general of Cuba, Dr. Jose Congosto, knows Americans well, having been consul of Spain at Philadelphia for the past 12 years. Dr. Congosto confesses that the pacification of Cuba is a difficult task "at this stage," but he does hope, does Congosto, that a policy of mildness on the part of Spain will yet bring the island back to the mother country. But when and builders, but the negotiations failed on account of Spain's inability to pay cash, and it was understood that her agents then began looking for bargains in warships which other countries were build- irg. Seme'of those countries are build- ire ships in England, among them being Chile, and it is supposed the government of that republic is willing to transfer to Spain three cruisers—the O'Higgins. tha Ksmoralda ar.d the Ministro Zentino— which have been practically completed bv' the Armstrongs. The latter, how- is orjy. ^willing. to s e " tne {hrce Tuisers to Spain for cash. Some Tornedo Ro:its in "Hoc." The Thompsons finished six torpeds boat destroyers for Spain a year ago. The firm delivered two of the boats, and is holding the others under the pretext of finishing them, but the general supposition is that the Thompsons are really holding the destroyers for payment. One of the foremost financiers of this country asserts that Spain i? unable to raise more money abroad and it is not thought likely that she can procure warships on the promise of paying for them by money. She may raise money later on by internal loans. Ahibbssaflor White on Cuba. Vienna, Nov. 3.—The Tageblatt publishes a report of an interview with the United States ambassador to Germany. Andrew D. White, on the subject of Cuba, in which White is quoted as saying that the Americans do not de?ire the annexation of Cuba, but that humanity and commercial interests will compel them to intervene. The r^ca 1 ! of General Weyler. White is said to have continued, has made a favorable impression in the United States, "where Premier Sagasta has many sympathizers." DEATH OF A BXAVE SOLD IKK. Hero of the Defense of Kork<-'s Drift Jnins the Great, Majority. London, Nov. 3.—John House Meriott Chard, V. C., the hero of the farncu? defense of Rorke's Drift, South Africa. in January. 1S97, died at Taunton Monday evening. Colonel Chard was bon. in 1847 and obtained his commiFsion in the Royal Engineers in 1S6S. As a lieutenant he went to Natal early in January, 1879, and on Jan. 22 was left i:i charge of the commissariat post at Rorke'3 Drift, with eighty men of th; Eightieth regiment of infantry. Sss'.r.s that an attack upon the post was imminent Lieutenant Chard caused a barricade to be hastily thrown up. the s sl- aters using the commissariat ?tore= fc: this purpose, and building the br-;nr: works partly under fire. Soon after dark the post was attacked by abcv.i 3,000 Zulus and the fighting lasted th- greater part of the night. Six times the Zulus succeeded in fr-r^- ing their way inside the barricade, 'vit they were each time driven out at th- polnt of the bayonet. At dawn the next day the post was relieved by a British force, and 351 dead Zulus were count'". near the barricade, while the r.urn.->•?: killed after that attack was esTirr.at-2 to be about 1,000. It was generally admitted at the time that the dei?--~ r,r Rorke'a Drift was the means of ?av:r-~ Grevron and He'.pmakar. as well c.; securing time for bringing about a retreat for tne main column. ^ cape from a frightful death.
